That is SK-8809, which looks like exactly the same as mine except with a wire running through
I have one of those, albeit in white. It's a really nice keyboard, with the only exception being that I don't like the navigation block layout; it is very nice to type on, compact and has a full set of multimedia/application keys.

I found several SK 8809s on ebay. But, alas, that model has no Trackpoint.

Those models were designed to be paired with the IBM ball mouse with that blue scroll button as far as I am aware of, because my wireless version of that keyboard (SK-8808) comes with that mouse in wireless, with a single send and receiver handling both devices.
But I gotta tell you, this keyboard feels better than the later IBM keyboards and certainly a lot better than the Lenovo ones (those ones feel cheaper and cheaper as the manufacturing date goes later and later).
